Glenn Beck’s Demagoguery, Right Wing Extremism, and Racism

At a time of 24-hour news and a proliferation of television and radio talk shows featuring hatemongers and demagogues like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck may stand out as the most unhinged and extremist of all as evidenced by his jihad against anyone to the left of his views, disadvantaged minorities, Muslims, Latino immigrants, and progressive change in some of his most outlandish comments, including:

– calling Barack Obama a “racist (who) has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture; I don’t know what it is….This guy is, I believe, a racist;”

– calling Van Jones “an avowed, radical, revolutionary communist,” then saying “Jones is the tip of the iceberg” as part of his over-the-top campaign against anyone less extremist than himself;

– stating “The most used phrase in my administration if I were to be President would be ‘What the hell do you mean we’re out of missiles;’ ”

– saying “We need to be the first ones in the recruitment office lining up to shoot the bad Muslims in the head…. In 10 years, Muslims and Arabs will be looking through a razor wire fence at the West;”

– telling Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison to “prove to me that you are not working with our enemies;”

– advocating disposing of Guantanamo detainees by shooting them in the head;

– accusing Al Gore of creating a new “Hitler youth” by promoting environmental awareness, and called for kicking California out of the union;

– in 2003, telling listeners he was praying for a gruesome death for Democrat presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, and in 2005 saying he fantasized about strangling filmmaker Michael Moore;

– characterizing Obama’s new regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, as a crazed animal rights activist who believes that rats matter more than people; and

– in September 2005, expressing open “hate” toward Katrina victims, calling them “scumbags” for not waiting patiently for emergency aid at a time their lives were devastated, and the Bush administration was forcibly removing them to distant locations, then preventing them from returning so predatory developers could exploit their neighborhoods for profit.

In May 2008, a Media Matters Action Network report titled, “Fear & Loathing in Prime Time: Immigration Myths and Cable News” highlighted undocumented Latino immigrant hatemongering by Lou Dobbs, Bill O’Reilly, and Glenn Beck, each making outlandish claims, including:

  • an alleged connection between undocumented Latinos and crime;
  • how they exploit social services and don’t pay taxes;
  • the “reconquista” myth about a supposed Mexican plot to take over the US Southwest; and
  • an epidemic of Latino voter fraud.

According to Beck, “It’s time to wake up in this country. We are dealing with an illegal alien (read Latino) crime wave, and drug smuggling is just the beginning.” He opened a special 2008 “Border Crisis” program saying: “America’s border crisis. Rape, drugs, kidnapping, even murder. It is beginning to look a lot more like a border war…. Every single illegal immigrant is guilty of a crime, every single one…. Every undocumented worker (read Latino) is an illegal immigrant, a criminal and a drain on our dwindling resources.”

He added:

– “I’ve got a quick message for illegal aliens if you happen to be watching; you better start packing your bags; and to the politicians in Washington who are soft on illegal immigration, start packing up your office, because when the terrorists strike, which they will, and when we find out that they’re here illegally from some other country, we will be telling all of you to get the hell out;”

– earlier he said “I told you about the five-part plan that I believe may lead to the end of the West as we know it; I called it my ‘Perfect Storm;’ one of the elements….is illegal immigration; it is still a great way for terrorists to come here and mess with us; but even if that doesn’t happen….at the very least (they’re) attacking our culture, and our way of life; they are not melting into our melting pot; they’re here for the cash;” and

– “I also know our country is on fire, and the fuel is illegal immigration; they (threaten) our national security;” they come for “three reasons: one, they’re terrorists; two, they’re escaping the law; or three, they’re hungry (because) they can’t make a living in their own dirtbag country.”

This is what passes for American mainstream “journalism” that’s in no worse form than from Glenn Beck – on Fox News, the radio outlets that give him a platform, and the sponsors that make his kind of programming possible. More on them below.

Joe McCarthy’s Earlier Jihad Against the Left

In the 1950s, Joe McCarthy’s witch-hunts against alleged communists, those on the left, and Democrat administration and other “subversives” included Secretary of State Dean Acheson whom he called “a pompous diplomat in striped pants,” General George Marshall when he was Secretary of State for being “soft on communism” and being “a man steeped in falsehood,” and many others on his so-called “blacklist.”

In 1950, with no proof, he said he had a list of 205 known communists in the State Department, later reduced the number to 57, but said they were passing secret information to the Soviets. He claimed:

The reason why we find ourselves in a position of impotency is not because the enemy has sent men to invade our shores, but rather because of the traitorous actions of those who had all the benefits that the wealthiest nation on earth has had to offer — the finest homes, the finest college educations, and the finest jobs in Government (and the private sector) we can give.

He characterized enemies as “card-carrying communists.” Others as “loyalty risks” or being “soft on communism.” For political gain, he vilified patriotic Americans, created years of hysteria, targeted anti-American books in libraries and got them removed, then overstepped enough to be hung on his own petard with publications like the Louisville Courier-Journal reporting that:

“In this long, degrading travesty of the democratic process, McCarthy has shown himself to be evil and unmatched in malice.” On December 2, 1954 the Senate censured him and took away his power base. Later ill with cirrhosis of the liver from years of abusive alcoholism, he died a broken man on May 2, 1957.

Today, the term “McCarthyism” is synonymous with baseless malicious slander, unscrupulous fear-mongering, vilifying the innocent, accusing them of disloyalty, and calling them terrorists, Islamofascists, illegal immigrants, and unpatriotic for supporting progressive change and ideas to the left of right wing views.

McCarthysim Redux Through the Right Wing Media

Nightly on Fox News, Glenn Beck delivers some of the worst of it to his estimated 2.3 million faithful and millions more on The Glenn Beck Program, a nationally syndicated talk-radio show aired by Premiere Radio Networks (a Clear Channel Communications subsidiary) throughout the country on over 300 stations, according to a Premiere Speakers Bureau promo about him stating that his program “is presently the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25-54.”

It said that he debuted on CNN’s Headline News in May 2006 “with his self-styled topical talk show and quickly soared in popularity.” CNN at the time called it “an unconventional look at the news of the day featuring (Beck’s) often amusing perspective on the top stories from world events and politics to pop culture and everyday hassles.”

In early January 2007, he also joined ABC News’ Good Morning America as a regular contributor with its senior executive producer, Jim Murphy, saying:

“Glenn is a leading commentator with a distinct voice. At times, he is the perfect guest for many of the talk topics we cover on morning news programs.”

In 2008, Beck won the Marconi Radio Award for Network Syndicated Personality of the Year from the National Association of Broadcasters. Previous winners included Rush Limbaugh and Fox News’ Sean Hannity. After his award, Premiere Radio Networks president, Charlie Rahilly, said:

“Glenn’s conversation with millions of Americans weekly on The Glenn Beck Program….makes him a familiar voice in our culture. We salute his work, creativity, and humor, and congratulate him on his genuine recognition by our industry.”

He regularly features guests like Karl Rove, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Rudy Giuliani, Rick Santorum, Rush Limbaugh, and an array of the most extremist Republican members of Congress, others from right wing think tanks, and former Bush administration officials.

His syndicator, Premiere Radio, is a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, the world’s largest radio broadcaster, concert promoter, and billboard advertising firm. It’s also a major player in US television and Spanish language broadcasting, and very much to the right of center in ideology. As one of America’s most powerful media companies, it’s played a leading role in destroying media diversity by airing the same content on many dozens of its stations simultaneously, suppressing everything not supportive of its views.

In 2002, Clear Channel attracted the attention of Senator Russ Feingold and several other members of Congress over its anti-competitive behavior and alleged shady business practices. In 2009, the company remains a powerful force, ranking ninth among the top 20 US media companies ahead of The New York Times Co., the Washington Post Co., Hearst Corp., and McGraw-Hill.

More on Beck’s Background

He’s written three New York Times-listed bestsellers, publishes the entertainment Fusion Magazine, and tours the country twice yearly in his own one-man show to promote himself as a national institution.

Instead of condemning his extremism, on December 4, 2006, the New York Times described him as a “tearful rising star” in calling him “brash (and) opinionated (with an) unfiltered approach (in) saying what others are feeling but are afraid to say.” Writers Brian Stelter and Bill Carter said he “has a gift for touching the passion nerve (by) tapping into fear about the future.”

They quoted Old Dominion University’s Jeffrey Jones saying Beck engages in “inciting rhetoric. People hear their values are under attack and they get worried. It becomes an opportunity for them to stand up and do something” without realizing how destructive Beck’s extremism is to their own well-being. Even Beck once said about himself: “I say on the air all the time, if you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.”

His Premiere’s Speakers Bureau bio says he debuted in radio at age 13 in Seattle, and grew up in nearby Mount Vernon. After high school, he got jobs “as a Top 40 DJ” in Baltimore, Houston, and New Haven, CT.

It also explained that at age 30, he became consumed by alcoholism and drug addiction, then regained sobriety and “found a new direction.” He remarried, became a baptized Mormon, and decided to pursue talk radio after being offered his own show on Tampa, Florida station WFLA-AM. In his first year, it became number-one rated, and within 18 months, Premiere Radio Networks offered him national syndication.

In January 2002, the Glenn Beck Program debuted on 47 stations. Today, he’s on over 300 as well as XM satellite radio.

LDS Living Magazine (for Latter Day Saint Mormon families) provides more details about Beck’s background. It said he was fired from his first three radio jobs in Washington State. Six months later, he returned on WPGC in Washington, DC. Was again fired. Then he became program director and “morning guy” on a small Corpus Christi, TX station. After two years of “moving around from city to city, he ended up in Baltimore.” He also worked at WRKA in Louisville, KY and WKCI-FM in Hamden, CT.

Three days after converting to Mormonism, he was offered his first radio talk show in Tampa. It propelled him to national prominence and his current positions at Fox News, his syndicated radio program (first from Philadelphia in January 2002, now in New York), and as a hot topic on other programs, including MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann’s war of words with Beck.

He posted a September 6 request on The Daily Kos to “Send Me Everything You Can Find About Glenn Beck.” He added that he’ll “expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his tv enables, Ailes (head of Fox News)….”

It may simply be a PR stunt to boost ratings and get added revenue for General Electric, MSNBC’s owner, that certainly can stop this if it wishes.

Sponsors Bailing Out on Beck

To date, over five dozen decided they’ll no longer be associated with his kind of antics, fearing, of course, it may harm their image and hurt sales and profits.

In 2005, Van Jones (now inactive) and James Rucker co-founded ColorOfChange.org “to strengthen Black America’s political voice” toward the goal of making “government more responsive to the concerns of Black Americans and to bring about positive political and social change for everyone.”

In the wake of Beck calling Obama a “racist” and attacking Van Jones, it sent a letter to his sponsors urging them to boycott “the kinds of views and tactics” he espouses and cease all advertising on his program.

FoxNewsBoycott.com joined in as part of its campaign “to help people realize that Fox News Channel and its personalities are a detriment to journalism and journalistic integrity.” It urges supporters “to boycott, not only Fox News Channel, but Fox News sponsors and companies that air Fox News in their places of business.”

To date, over 60 companies no longer advertise on Glenn Beck, including:

  • AT & T
  • Bank of America
  • Bell & Howell
  • Best Buy
  • Campbell Soup
  • Capital One
  • Clorox
  • Berkshire Hathaway’s GEICO Insurance
  • General Mills
  • HSBC
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Kraft Foods
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • Procter & Gamble
  • Sanofi-Aventis
  • Sprint
  • Travelers Insurance
  • UPS
  • Verizon Wireless, and
  • Wal-Mart

Many others still advertise, but more keep pulling out, showing the effectiveness of the national campaign, backed by many tens of thousands of signatures from Color of Change and Fox News Boycott supporters.

The Internet’s power is real and proves when enough committed people back progressive issues, constructive change follows. If if works against Glenn Beck and Fox News, why not in a campaign to reclaim the kind of America people deserve and can have if they work hard enough for it.

If not now, when? If not us, who? If not soon, maybe never? If that’s not incentive enough, what is?

    Good article, BUT maybe the most hate-filled among us are those who go to other countries, invade, occupy, and kill the residents there. Then they come back home and WE call them heroes and give them parades.

    Beck is a bad guy, but the rest of us are not much better.

    I have started watching Beck everyday… it is refreshing to hear a man echo my own thoughts. I have known that Obama was a scam artist from the start, and now we see his czars and ACORN are just more proof of what he is up to. Glenn Beck’s sponsors can count on me watching everyday!

    NOBAMA!

    Beck is a sad little clown in clowntown USA and he has embraced the thinking of bad is good. It work’s in the greatest nation on Earth. Do we hear the truth on any of the network news channels? No we sure do not. Why not because they are scared and they think by holding on to the past it will somehow go back to normal, wrong. Beck and the right are the real old thinkers on another planet far far away the other side are at least on this planet but still need to hold on to that old way of thinking and that is insanity as we all go down the drain in not such slow motion. Again they are just scared well get tuff people face the truth face the problem, problems use the knowledge the real thing not illusion tell people we need to work together to face the biggest problem the human race has ever faced. Oh my somebody said you lie to the President what is this country coming to? A bunch of kid’s playing little games with second grade level thinking. Health care and the bullshit they put people through and next climate change bill a joke on the human race and Copenhagen instead of trying it will be just more illusion because they are scared little children and the children and there children in ten then twenty years because of wimps for parents will they be scared? Hard to be scared when you are trying to survive. Oh that’s not true things are not that bad why because Beck or forbes or Armey, Inhofe, McConnell and on and on say so sorry scared little people and in many cases clowns. There our some good minds and they are not being listened too because money talk’s and shit walk’s well very soon there will be more crap than money. Some I think want to try but are wating for somebody else to start to tell the truth. Come on people a ruined Earth is a ruined Earth and moving to Hawaii doesn’t change that little fact. Glenn Beck is a shithead and a clown and has a lot of company in clowntown USA. What would Thomas Jefferson think if he could see today’s thinking or Einstein or Charles Dickens? Probably something like are you people kidding me how did this happen. If they could watch the Glenn Beck show then give them a few minutes to think probably they would all say are there many like this in today’s World shithead’s and clowns and do many believe this crap what happened to this World then my old friend Charles Dickens would say.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

    And Glenn Beck and many more would say Obama is a Socialist. We should be so lucky. Think of this as kind of a war. The truth the knowledge is our friend not shithead’s.

    This is the opening paragraph from Margaret Kimberly’s article today on Black Agenda Report

    Freedom Rider: In Praise of Tea Baggers
    The Right shows far more eagerness for a fight than the hapless Left, or what remains of it. Barack Obama “smacks down” progressives like gnats, yet they continue to behave as if their mission in life is to save his presidency. Now, purported progressives vow to defend White House “health reform” proposals that bear no resemblance whatever to reform. “Only the wrongheaded and racist are taking action at this critical time.”

    She goes on write …

    While zombie-like right-wingers attended congressional town halls in droves, and agitated in favor of the status quo, progressives sat back and haughtily looked down on the yahoos. It didn’t occur to the besotted Obama lovers to question whether any of their idol’s proposals could in fact be called reform at all. Those who knew the score and demanded a robust public option were shut out by the White House and congressional negotiators. Members of Congress who did dare to speak up were threatened with retribution by presidential chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and his enforcers.

    Only the wrongheaded and racist are taking action at this critical time. Their animosity towards Obama is rooted in the shock and awe brought about by the very presence of a black president. It is also mixed with the anger brought about by the defeat of the Republican Party, accurately perceived as the champion of white America. Unable or unwilling to express the true source of their anger, the self-proclaimed “tea baggers” are left to call Obama a new Hitler, or a new Stalin, or a Kenyan smuggled into Hawaii as a newborn baby.

    Here’s is how I assess the issue. During the past 30 years the Left has ceded ground to the Right. The Left especially the Zionist Left in the U.S. did not want to effectively address racism. The Zionist Left could not take a stance against racism without being scrutinized for the own hypocrisy in supporting Israel’s existence meaning limiting justice for the Palestinians. Therefore the rabid Zionist (ie. neo-cons) could be as brazen in their racism since they knew they would receive little confrontation their counterparts on the Left. Thus these Jewish Neo-Cons were among those who camped alongside the “Reagan (Counter) Revolution”.

    The Zionist Left also help to suppress intellectual arguments on the economy as well especially any strong level of Marxist advocacy. While the right unfortunately took up the banner of increasing the awareness of the Federal Reserve debt financing of the economy.

    Because the Left withdrew and it all cannot be blamed on 1950′s McCarthyism help to create the void filled by reactionaries. Now that the really is a crisis afoot the Left because of its drift to the right is ill-prepared to combat the current crisis of economic and societal proportions.

    Another example, today the house recinded ACORN’s funding. This was the source of jobs for many in poor communities. I don’t see any Left rally or marches going on to defend this group who were squarely set up. Yet I find it amusing that Richard Oxman believes he can take the California governorship with his ill-conceived scheme.

    There is a lot of work that needs to occur first especially to rebuild the Left into a real fighting force for progressive change. There work has to start with a Left that truly BELIEVES in the values of justice, equality and fairness and build a real solidarity with people of color in order for any kind of real challenge to Capitalism and racism to emerge.

    In not to many years when human systems start to fall apart this group Acorn well as things change there will be groups, gangs, org’s that will make Acorn look like the boy scouts and that’s just at the beginning. Probably some compounds with people of wealth. Although after watching New Orleans maybe not. And what path are we on this one.

    If you read that it is interesting about health care first and then no political will for climate change. Was this planned I don’t think so just stupidity second grade level thinking. Also in that article they say sometime this century. Let’s just watch this winter and see when sometime this century might be.

    When I watch the History Channel or National Geographic Channel I see some of the best minds we have now. Almost to the person when talking of climate change they all say number one problem with those big bombs second. They say climate change will bring an end to the human race as we know it and happening much faster than first thought. Then those same people in a few day’s will talk of space travel or a new planet just found outside our solar system. Same with many things I read on line about climate change then move on to say the economy. Network news same maybe a 30 second bit on our forests are burning or Northwest passage open again then what did this Senator say about that Senator. Here’s what one man said about that thinking.

    It’s like the pre-World War II calm in Britain when I was a young man. No one did anything until bombs began to fall. We really don’t notice climate change; it seems theoretical to most of us. When the first great climate disaster strikes, I hope we will all pull together just as if our nation was being invaded. James Lovelock

    Not to smart to say the least. The problem of course is unless we start now we don’t get a second chance.

    All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts. His acts being seven ages.

    Unless the thinking changes total focus that will read, All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits; and one man in his time plays many parts. His acts being seven ages. Now many people older little men in fancy suit’s will say so be it. Yes you got a chance to live and now your thinking is oh well just the way it is kid’s, that is not cool.

    Mr Lendmen–

    If you don’t like him, don’t watch him.

    I don’t like you and therefore don’t frequent your blog.

    I’m not demanding that you be shut down. In fact, I wish more folks in “flyover country” read the nonsense you spew so they’ll know the identify of the enemy within. By all means, continue to spew your nonsense for any and all interested to read.

    But you demand Beck and others be silenced. Why? Are you afraid that someone might hear him and think perhaps he’s onto something? Or is it just the nature of the “social (in)justice” crowd to make sure that no one who disagrees is allowed to be heard?

    Your demand for authoritarian control over the airwaves is a fascinating sign of your own weakness.

    Can we (all liberal left-linging pro-Obama), communist red to the core media all chant together—

    “Glenn Beck is a racist, a bigot…!”

    The neo-Sadducee chants of “bad Beck” are chiming in unison to try to achieve their “brave” leader’s goal of shouting down all opposition (the bigger threat, the bigger the shout down).

    McCarthy’s credibility increases as more people try to link the likes of Glenn Beck and others to him. Apparently McCarthy was correct, just 50 years before his time.

    Thank you for the compilation of Glenn Beck quotes! I love this man.

    Here’s another of my favorite quotes from another of my heroines, regarding the Islamofacists:

    “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.” – Ann Coulter

    Go Beck!

You represent everything about AmeriKKKa that has made it loathed around the world by every decent human being, and loved by every vicious fascist arse-hole in existence. AmeriKKKa stands for nothing but greed, hated of others and murder, but, guess what, you psychopaths. The party is over. Your decrepit Republic of greed and brainwashed imbecility and ignorance is crumbling. When your Reich of Murder, that has killed tens of millions from the Native Americans, black slaves and the inhabitants of scores of countries over centuries, crumbles, the celebrations will echo for years.And when your empire of loot and pillage can no longer afford the trillions that give you the technological edge to fight the most gutless, cowardly, one-sided massacres, the way you prefer it (we’d hate to get into a fair fight, wouldn’t we, and end up blubbering for our ‘moms’)there are going to be millions upon millions looking for revenge.

    Nah, Danny, I’m not interested in getting anywhere near any psycho Yankee Rightwinger. What I’d dearly love to see is AmeriKKKa hoist on its own petard. I’d love to see the Republic of Murder, which has specialised in fomenting civil war in other countries (Yugoslavia, Iraq) or taking the side of the most Evil in civil strife (El Salvador, Guatemala, Lebanon) riven by the internecine hatred and destruction it has visited on so many others. The thought of the bellowing, gun-fondling, mobile (just) parcels of lard and bile one witnesses waddling in front of the cameras at Rightwing racist jamborees, turned loose on their fellows, rather than the women and children of the poor world, fills me with giddy expectation. Not only would it hinder the Yankee Reich in obliterating new victims and slaughtering their children, but the evil ones might even lose, and the US emerge a decent country, not a psychotic serial killer.

    Get ready for more pit one side against the other on a grand scale and the signs oh those signs. Mulga put it rather well.

    As we wave our arms in the air as they sing where have all the forests gone the animals the bee’s the water the food a long long time ago. Oh I almost forgot very sure we will hear we can’t do this think of the kid’s and there future we can’t do this it’s for the kid’s. Then wave your arms in the air. All that knowledge, reason, love, wisdom is hard to take in all at once. Hello Glenn can’t wait to see your chalk board today.

    Call them what they are … Boothers.

    The rhetoric is meant to incite violence. They are appealing to racism:

    Propaganda wars have started! The time for racial wars is approaching!

    The cry of the average White American Right (WAR) is biased but understandable! Their masses are being misinformed by a media
    shop that is profiting from them. These firerstarters will regret the harm to a free society they are about to char.

    The 5th Power, the internet and those that seek peace, freedom and justice, must become viral in spreading this message. It needs to be taught nationally.

    Irresponsible media, facilitating iresponsible and misleading messages must be monitored and counter acted.

    Fox news is helping hate grow! It is opening the divide further in America! Glen Beck must be heard but there must be some accountability! Driving and manipulating the fear of a Majority can drive the US to chaos and racial wars!

    Glen Beck and other Anchor chroonies, listen up:

    Stop planting the seeds of hate, phobia and bigotry!

    Not that the Elite Jewish establishmet is totally innocent here!

    Or that the spread of a black minority agenda that includes “payback” is not happening across the country!

    The blacks were slaves but so have been the Mexicans!

    Yes, the US took their lands and have been slaves to all kinds of corporations! Many farmers exploit these people but, no big deal, they are part of the spoils of war…!

    It may be inconvenient to send them home! Who will pick up the crops? Who will do the dirty work?

    There is no Inmigration Reform because leaving them as slaves of the corporations and other farmers will continue until their economies bloom as part of the new world order and there is no need to come back to a bankrupt America. No reform will come as this can be construed as an element needed as part of national security…?

    Most White Americans are nobel and kind human beings! We need more microphones to reach them. The good microphones, not the ones infected with bigotry, mis- information, mistaken racial superiority beliefs and oportunistic media marketing!

    We need more TV and Radio staions to inform this Great Majority!

    We need microphones that can reach the young in the South, in the North West! Everywhere! We need to reach these people, the White American Right (WAR)!

    We need to review our inmigration policies! We need Peace not a looming Racial War!

    Mulga, Don…

    Just a couple points for you to consider:

    And I don’t know if you’ve ever opened a history book, but the fucked up shit that happens here has already been done by EVERY COUNTRY THAT EVER EXISTED! Seriously, I’m not sure why the rest of the world thinks its really cool to bash Americans without ever even stepping a foot here, but really, it’s sad.

    I am not a racist. I have never owned a slave, nor do I know anyone who has. Not a single American born black person in this country has ever been a slave. Knowing this, I’m not exactly sure where all this talk of slavery and retaliation comes from.

    People who are completely right, completely left, and are religious zealots, no matter what the religion, are out of their gourds.

    The American government has its issues, but so does every other government that has ever existed. But here’s the bottom line: They all do their best to support their people, despite how some douchebags act.

    Genetically speaking, all races people are 99.99% the same. And genetically speaking, race does not exist.

    Being prepared to protect what is important, like your family and your way of life, does not make you a gun-fondling idiot. It makes you human.

    When you really get down to it, most people who have a strong opinion about their political views really just do it to sound cool.

    So seriously, get a grip on the human condition.
